THE FITZWALTER ARMS
Dating back to 1589 and steeped in over 400 years worth of history, the Fitzwalter Arms is a beautiful destination dining Pub & Restaurant located in rural Goodnestone, Kent.
Goodnestone is a village in the district of Dover, which is located around seven miles from Canterbury city and 5 miles from historic Sandwich.
Many changes have been made to the pub over the years, however the Fitzwalter Arms still retains it unique charm and character together with many of its original features. Kent hops line the beautiful wooden beams and it has open fire places, wooden floors, rustic exposed brick walls and leaded glass windows that feature in all of the local Fitzwalter estate.
Internally you will find the feature bar servery and a more relaxed lower bar area with comfy sofas and tables used for informal dining or a good game of dominoes, cards or bar billiards. There is also a beautiful restaurant dining room for approx. 30 covers, which also doubles up as private dining and events space as required.
In 2016, the Fitzwalter Arms opened its doors for the first time in over 400 years to overnight guests. Its three unique guest letting bedrooms on the first floor of the property are well maintained and all boast ensuite bathrooms, tea & coffee making facilities and freeview televisions.
One of the most popular features at the Fitzwalter Arms is its large pretty grassed garden to the rear of the property with a patio area and seating. There is also a barn used for laundry and storage and an additional separate barn, also currently used for storage. There is street side customer car parking available outside of the property.
Moving forward Shepherd Neame is looking for tenants that wish to run a pub & restaurant that is integral to village life whilst also remaining welcoming to tourists and passers-by. For more information please contact us on 01795 542132.
